This product is amazing! I always like Ren Skincare products. They have once again get 5 stars from me. It makes me skin glow just after one use. It's very gentle and effective. Highly recommended!
I have two in different shades I guess my only complain is how hard it is to squeeze it out of the tube... the product is ok, but for how much it costs I'd rather go back to my Hard candy concealer, much better coverage and a lot creamier.
The coverage is ok when you first apply it, but it fades throughout the day. It looks a little bit cakey to me. If you like the matte finish you might like it, but I like my foundation finish to be dewy and glowy. For how much it costs I wish I had kept the receipt so I can return it.
I've tried every popular foundations over the years, smashbox, makeup forever, tarte, l'oreal, revlon, josie maran, jane iredale, bare mineral etc I have to say this is my favorite foundation by far!! I love the fact it has no parabens and it's a water based foundation. I esp. love the dewy finish. It looks very natural and light yet it has the buildable coverage. My day starts at 4:30 in the morning everyday, I'd say when I get home around 7 at night, it still looks pretty good. I set my T zone with the Mac mineralized power, it looks great. highly recommended!
BB Cream -MISSHA - M Signature Real Complete B.B. Cream SPF 25 PA++

I love how it makes my skin look. One of the best BB creams or foundations I've tried. The coverage is light to medium ( dewy finish) so it's perfect for everyday use. I'm also very happy with the fact it's paraben free BUT I did get a little concerned when I saw how LONG the ingredients list was... overall it's great. I will defi. repurchase it again when it runs out.
Treatments (Eye) -Bobbi Brown - EXTRA Eye Repair Cream

I probably have tried all the popular eye creams there are out there. I just never really saw any results. I didn't understand why i needed to buy a different moisturizer just for the eyes...until I started using this one. OMGosh, all the fine lines under my eyes just disappeared over night. Yes it is very expensive but if you add up all the money you waste on all the skin care products that dont work, it's really not bad. A little bit goes a long way. I just started using it but I think this little jar will last me a few months. Highly recommended!!
Bronzers -Tarte - Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer
littlefangfang 12/30/2011 7:09:00 PM
Perfect color. Doesn't look orange. I've been looking for a perfect matte bronzer for a while. By far it's the best I've used. I used to only use the shimmery bronzers and I've learned it actually makes your face look dirty vs glowy. Kim Kardashian's makeup artist said you are supposed to use a matte bronzer and highlight on your face to achieve the "glow". Shimmer bronzers just make you look dirty and unnatural. I love this bronzer and I'm definitely going to stick to it. Edit: I stopped using it, for some reason it doesn't show in pictures. so I went back to my MAC bronzer...I have to take a Lippie off
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed Tarte Blush

I've used many blushes over the years. ( Nars Orgasm, and different blushes from Benefit and MAC), I have to say this one by far is the most natural looking blush I have ever used. It gives just enough color to make you look fresh without the "pink cheeks" look. It's perfect for everyday wear, and going out. Two thumbs up! ( BTW, just looking at the color doesn't justify how good it actually looks on your face. You just gotta try it.)
Good stuff. Makes my skin glow so nicely. Personally I think it's worth the money. Highly recommended!
I like the result ok but I was reading up on it, it's not natural and it's silicone based. It coats the hair to make it look smooth and shinny but you can hardly wash it off with water. I'm guessing because of that it gives you the illusion that your hair is smooth and soft, in actually it dries your hair out inside. Plus it has synthetic fragrance which is toxic to your body ( I do love the smell don't get me wrong) ... I have tried just the 100% Argan oil. It's a little greasier than the Moroccan oil, but I think I will stick to that cuz it actually does good to my hair instead of making it look like it's doing a good job.
I have been using this mascara for years. I can be a beauty product snob. but when it comes to mascaras, I dont see there's a need to not stick to a drug store brand. Over the years I've tried so many different ones, and by far this one is my favorite. It makes my eyelashes look so full and long ( I don't have a lot of eyelahes). Although it flakes a little bit, but I don't mind. I had tried the water proof version... not a fan... I had to basically pull my lashes out to get it off. it was a pain in the neck. I will stick to this one.
Eyeliner -Sephora - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner
littlefangfang 12/24/2011 8:24:00 AM
Best eyeliner I have used. Actually I had other eyeliners were as good but cost maybe twice as much. This one really stays on and very user friendly. I like the fact you don't have to sharpen it. I hated how pencil eyeliner sharpeners make my makeup bag dirty. my only complain is this kind of liners don't last as long as the pencil ones and you can never tell when it runs out so i always keep an extra one in the bag or drawer in case it runs out.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)
littlefangfang 12/24/2011 8:19:00 AM
What's not to like about coconut oil? It's multifunctional. It smells AMAZING! It moisturizes and nourishes you skin ( awesome makeup remover too) and hair wonderfully and you can also cook with it. It has so many health benefits. It'd be crazy not to have a jar in the house at all times. ...One of the victoria secret angels says she puts a spoonful of it on her salad everyday and that's her beauty secret... ( does it make you want to have a jar in the house even more haha) UPDATE: I put a quarter size of coconut oil in my hair ( I have very thick and long hair) after the shower. It smells wonderful and my hair feels so soft and smooth. the coconut oil does what I expected out of Argan oil ( which failed my expectations, maybe it's better for the skin). I did read online that coconut oil is one of the few oils can actually penetrate into the hair instead of sitting on the top ( like Jojoba oil, to my Argan oil too). It's definitely worth trying, if you dont like it you can always cook with it. It's not nearly as expensive as other natural oils either.
It took me a long time to discover this product. I used to only use expensive department store brands (or sephora) . after been on this "clean" beauty product kick, and reading all the articles and books about the 'truth' of beauty industry I am officially scared to put any of that stuff on my face. This product is simple and gets the job done and makes my skin feel really soft and clean afterwards. If you are used to the normal cleanser's after feeling, maybe this is not the product for you. I used Aveeno for a while and i just recently read the label on the back, it's loaded with paraben and synthetic fragrance...as much as i liked how good it smells and how nice my skin feels after, you bet I'd never put that crap on my face ever again.
Treatments -Ren - Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask
littlefangfang 12/24/2011 7:19:00 AM
I never thought a mask can do that much. After one use i could tell the big difference. It made my skin glow and dewy. It's a little bit pricey but when it comes to skin care I think it's totally worth it. Plus it's paraben, synthetic fragrance free all that good stuff. I love it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!
